  • Wanna marry an Indonesian woman

    I am from Bangladesh and i want to get married with an Indonesian woman. I'll be going to Indonesia this September. I want to know what should be done.
    I have asked several people but got different types of answers.
    Please kindly help me.

    A lot depends on what your plans are. Were you hoping to emigrate to Indonesia with a spousal visa and work here? Or do you want to return to Bangladesh with your bride? Also, are the two of you the same religion?

        There has been hundreds of pages written on the I want to get married to an Indonesian" subject suggest you become a little more pro active and read through the old threads.

          (a) Getting an Indonesian Visa :
          Your best option is a Single Entry (Visit) Visa (also called Social Cultural/Sosbud Visa ) , sponsored by your future wife . You will have to ask her to write/send you a sponsor letter (see a sample in the link below) + a copy of her KTP (identity card) . Ask her to refer you as the future husband in the letter .

          http://www.livinginindonesiaforum.or...=5217#post5217 (post no.4 , sample of sponsor's letter for a Sosbud)

          See the details at the (Dhaka's) Indonesian Embassy's website . Because there are mistakes in their pages , check all these 3 webpages :

          http://www.kemlu.go.id/dhaka/id/laya...erjalanan.aspx
          Note 1 : DO NOT sent anything to P.O. Box 112 , 3000 Bern 15​ as mentioned in the 2nd webpage .
          Note 2 : The Embassy usually requires a return/onward flight ticket . You can explai them that you want to get a KITAS and continue living in Indonesia , or buy the cheapest ticket from Indonesia to Singapore or Malaysia , or .. (see other options in the ticket links) .

          (b) Documents for your marriage : ask your future wife to get the list of the required documents from the KUA (if you are Muslims) , or church/Catatan Sipil (for other religions) , where you will marry . To have an idea of the documents . see the first link below . The main document from you is the Embassy's letter of non-impediment to marry . If you don't want to go to your Embassy in Jakarta? , you can bring an equivalent document from your country .

            marcus Thanks for the great reply dear brother.

            Have a few doubts to clear

            Is it necessary for her to sponsor? What if i get the tourist visa from here and go and marry her?

            Another question is, you said "The main document from you is the Embassy's letter of non-impediment to marry . If you don't want to go to your Embassy in Jakarta? , you can bring an equivalent document from your country ."

            So does this mean i can take a similar documents from my country to indonesia without facing Embassy? and what can be the similar documents.

            Thanks for ur time.

              (2b) and what can be the similar documents...

              (1) A Tourist Visa (does not require a sponsor) is easier to get but cannot be converted into an one year Limited Stay Permit/KITAS . So it will cost you more later , as you will need to go to Singapore or Malaysia after the 59th day to get the Sosbud Visa (or a VITAS , which I don't recommend either) . Besides that , the Sosbud Visa can be extended up to 180 days , which gives you more time to marry , find a place to live , and prepare the required documents for the KITAS without going out of Indonesia .

              Note : The Sosbud can only be converted into a KITAS if the sponsor is your future wife .

              (2a) Yes , but better check with your marriage office first , as by not being a common practice , some officers will be afraid to accept .

              (2b) See what is used in your own country , preferably a document from your government . In my country there is such a government document (proving one is not married , so free to marry) , but it was not a very convincing document , so I did a notarized document stating I was single and could be prosecuted if not true , with 2 wiitnesses , which I later made a sworn translation to English in my country and a sworn translation to Indonesian in Indonesia (and my marriage office in Indonesia agreed with that) . Be aware that the officers can also ask you to legalize (or register) the document in the Indonesian Embassy in your country (but it didn't happen in my case) .
